Pelvic fracture is considered a common and sometimes fatal injury. There are still developments in novel pelvic fixations. In order to investigate the performance of these fixations, a specialized testing set-up is required. Typically, the strains of a few selected points and the changes in the...
The Effect on Elastic Modulus of Rigid-Matrix Tubular Composite Braid Radius and Braid Angle Change Under Tensile LoadingDownload
The objective of this paper is to assess changes in braid radius and braid angle of braided composite tubes under tensile loading using stereomicroscope digital image correlation (DIC) based optical measurement techniques. Using this approach, displacement fields were calculated and three...
Archwire rotation is used in orthodontic treatment to alter the labiolingual orientation of a tooth. Measurement of the 3-dimensional (3D) motion of the orthodontic brackets requires a new configuration of the orthodontic torque simulator. The orthodontic torque simulator was coupled with a...
Braces are commonly used to correct misalignments or malocclusions in the mouth. One particular orthodontic treatment utilizes archwire rotation to control the anterior inclination of a tooth and motion is achieved through the interaction of a rectangular archwire within the rectangular bracket...
Braces are used by orthodontists to correct the misalignment of teeth in the mouth. Archwire rotation is a particular procedure used to correct tooth inclination. Wire rotation can result in deformation to the orthodontic brackets, and an orthodontic torque simulator has been designed to examine...
